Let The Breath Take You Into The Body....




"If at any time you are finding it hard to get in touch with the inner body, it us usually easier to focus on your breathing first.  Conscious breathing, which is a powerful meditation in its own right, will gradually put you in touch with the body.  Follow the breath with your attention as it moves in and out of your body.  Breath into the body, and feel your abdomen expanding and contracting slightly with each inhalation and exhalation.  If you find it easy to visualize, close your eyes and see yourself surrounded by light or immersed in a luminous substance - a sea of consciousness.  Then breath in that light.  Feel that luminous substance filling up your body and making it luminous also.  Then gradually focus more on the feeling.  You are now in your body.   Don't get attached to any visual image."  -Eckhart Tolle, The Power Of Now.
